COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course explores the connection between mathematics and the written/theatric creative arts - a connection that is both rich and deep. Students will read fiction and watch films in which mathematics concepts provide the framework or play a pivotal role within the creative piece. Students will also study the mathematical topics related to these works in order to better understand the authorís intent. Lessons might include mathematical lectures, hands-on group activities, problem sets, class discussions of readings and viewings, written responses and major expository papers.
